Inaugural Heavyweight Champion Will Be Crowned at LFA 15

Legacy Fighting Alliance crowns their first ever Heavyweight champion tonight, LIVE on AXS TV!

In the main event, Richard “The Black Eagle” Odoms (12-3) and Jared “The Mountain” Vanderaa (5-0) are set to showdown for the inaugural LFA Heavyweight championship. Vanderaa is a Legacy Fighting Alliance newcomer who trains with Dan Henderson and has finished all five of his opponents. Odoms is coming off of a brutal TKO victory back at LFA 6 and has an impressive record, with five of his wins coming by way of KO/TKO. Make sure to keep your eyes glued to the screen during this one!

In the co-main event, the Middleweights are up to bat as Chris Harris (8-1) & Cortez “The Crazy Cowboy” Coleman (13-7) make their LFA debuts. Harris has a total of five first round finishes and has previously made three appearances with Bellator where he went 2-1. Coleman is coming off of a loss to Rafael Lovato Jr. back at Legacy FC 62, but 8 of his 13 victories have come by way of a finish. Both men will be looking to make their way back into the winner’s circle, so watch for a finish in this one!

The action starts at 9/8c on AXS TV with commentators Ron Kruck, UFC Hall of Famer Pat Miletich & Phoenix Carnevale.
